Westside Art Walk

The heat is on! Come inside and enjoy some art during Saturday’s Westside Art Walk.


The Creatives Project Art Supply Drive
We’ve been collecting art supplies all summer long – this is our Last Call! Drop off new and used art supplies to benefit young artists in need at any of the Westside Arts District participating galleries. Just look for the red bins! This year the focus is on 2D art work – so we’re collecting items for drawing, painting, printmaking photography as well as miscellaneous items such as glue, glue sticks, scissors, rulers, matt boards, tape, etc. You get the idea!
